Phase II Alternative Debris Removal
Property owners who do not qualify for, or who chose not to participate in, the Government-sponsored Debris Removal Program, must hire properly licensed private contractors and consultants to remove fire debris and clean up their properties.
An Alternative Fire Debris Removal Application form must be submitted, and a Work Plan must be approved by the Butte County Environmental Health Division prior to the commencement of work. Private debris removal is done at the homeowner’s expense and must meet the standards outlined for the Alternative Program. This includes compliance with all legal requirements for disposal, best management practices for activities on site, proper transportation and documentation of waste, and erosion control.
